Question about cleansers

I have read that some people find better results with a non medicated cleanser and then a medicated topical. I've been using a medicated wash and just wondering what has worked for all of you. Thank you so much!

I have been using Cetaphil normal cleanser for over a year and find it to be wonderful. It really depends on if you use topicals or not. Personally, I use a benzoyl peroxide gel in the morning when needed and a retinoid called Differin at night. Because I apply these to my face, I feel as if a plain cleanser is all I need.

Before I went to the dermatologist, I used a Neutrogena face wash with 2.5% SA in it...and honestly, it didn't do much. I have had much better luck with a normal wash with no medication it whatsoever.
